Welcome to the School of Theatre + Dance at the University of Florida! Please visit us on our website or in person on our campus to learn more about our various nationally accredited degree programs, outstanding facilities, and vigorous production season.
Housed within one of the finest research universities in the nation (#8 US NEWS public universities), the School of Theatre + Dance, nationally ranked #15 by CollegeFactual, provides an intimate setting where students, faculty, and staff interact in constant and close collaboration. Our curricular programs are suited to a range of student interests and talents, from the liberal arts BA degree to the competitive BFA and MFA professional training degrees. With a dozen or more fully staged productions each year, including a co-production with the Hippodrome Theatre, as well as other performances directed and produced by student organizations like the Florida Players, the School offers a wealth of production opportunities.
The University of Florida College of the Arts intends to be a transformative community, responding to and generating paradigmatic shifts in the arts and beyond. As artists and scholars, we embrace the complexity of our evolving human experience and seek to empower our students and faculty to shape that experience fearlessly through critical study, creative practice, and provocation.
Take a moment to read about our exceptional faculty. As you will see, SoTD faculty members are leaders in theatre and dance nationally and globally. International guest artists frequently provide master classes, present original choreography for our dance productions, and perform on our stages. Faculty in the School and College also coordinate innovative research centers such as the Center for Arts in Medicine and the Digital Worlds Institute. These centers offer intercultural and interdisciplinary programming, as well as select certificate and degree plans of study.
The University of Florida is a place where continuity of inquiry intersects with innovative learning. Come join us!
